Coca Cola Balloon in Macys Parade

Coca Cola has launched a TV ad, “It’s Mine”, during the Super Bowl, showing a new angle to life on the Coke Side of Life. “It’s Mine” is a combination live action and computer generated spot set during the famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. When a giant Coca-Cola contour bottle balloon joins the parade, a good-natured tussle ensues among the skyscrapers of New York as several well-known character balloons (Underdog and Stewie Griffin from Family Guy) vie for the floating Coke. In the end, the surprise victor shows that even a perennial underdog can triumph on ‘The Coke Side of Life.’
